|In 2000, Indiana
established academic standards for Economics. These standards
are designed by unit. Each unit begins with a "big
picture" statement that provides an overview of what should be
learned in the unit. Under each "big picture" statement is a
listing of the core standards for that unit. The core
standards are used to drive lesson plans and classroom activities.
Indiana has additional standards (non-core standards) but they are
not listed on these pages since they are not included in the state
supplied end of course assessment (ECA).
